EDCAG

Animated EDCAG tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This exercise is from the Theory Section on the CAGED system.

Here we use the CAGED system to play in the key of E Major. This simply means Starting from the E (EDCAG):

E major chord shape and scale pattern

D major chord shape and scale pattern

C major chord shape and scale pattern

A major chord shape and scale pattern

G major chord shape and scale pattern

You already know these scales by now, all we are doing is starting them from a different root note!

DCAGE

You can use this little table to help you remember the basic CAGED system.

Just as a point of interest, notice that you can use this version of the D chord shape to get a fuller chord in the key of E because you can include the lower strings too.
